There is a growing movement of communities across Australia using place-based collaborative, long-term approaches to drive better outcomes for all. This work recognises the need for a new holistic approach to address the complex and persistent challenges now impacting many localities, such as child vulnerability, poverty and intergenerational disadvantage.
This report’s primary audience are the philanthropic funders and communities (backbone leaders in particular) that engage in community led innovation. It seeks to progress conversation and action, and enable relationships for sustainability and impact. The insights and tools offered may also be of relevance to new philanthropic funders considering entering this social investment space and to governments and systems influencers who shape the broader funder ecosystem.
The Centre is committed to building cross-sector relationships and has a collective approach to health and social care. Learn about our Partners.
